This Photo Post Card is one of my Ebay finds. It is for a place nicknamed “Camp Babb”. On the sign you can read Company F, 2nd Regiment, Captain Babb Commanding. I don’t know much more about it just yet and wanted to throw it out to the masses, so someone who is better with Military History can help me figure out who Captain Babb was. I believe it is from WWII.

For what it’s worth, I found a reference to a Marine Capt. Babb in command of 43rd Expeditionary Company at Vera Cruz in late April – early May, 1914. https://www.mca-marines.org/gazette/roots-deployment-vera-cruz-1914
Camp Babb was a summer CCC camp (Apr-Aug) in Montana from 1935-1939. Capt. Babb was most likely Henry Redmond Babb b. 18 Feb 1901, Springfield, Clark, Ohio; d. 12 Sep 1977, Urbana, Champaign, Ohio.
Thanks for helping me figure that one out!
